North America » United States » Washington » Seattle September 10th 2013

Wednesday morning ( as every morning thereafter) began with a yummy breakfast at the hotel and a dip in the hot tub and pool, followed by a walk across the street to the Lake Union marina. We spent a while checking out the great antique boats outside the Museum of History and Industry, including a Lighthouse Boat, Fire Boat and Tug Boats and then moved on to the Museum. We saw lots of neat exhibits in the lobby of the Museum and visited the gift shop but decided not to spend the roughly $20 per person and the time to tour the entire Museum. The employees at the Museum were really nice and one told us where to catch the Trolley downtown and even let us know no ticket was needed. We walked about a block ... read more

Friday morning Kenny and I walked to REI, Recreation Equipment Inc, the largest Sporting Goods Retailer in the Northwest. The weather was typical Seattle weather, cool with a light mist. It felt wonderful! We passed by a Community Garden on the way and I, of course, had to stop and smell the roses, and all the other flowers and vegetables inside. There are many Community Gardens in Seattle gracing the neighborhoods and providing nourishment to many local Food Banks. When we reached REI, we were astounded by the beautiful landscaping, complete with huge Fir trees and waterfalls. After spending some time perusing the goods and checking out the inside hiking trail and the outside biking trail, we headed back to the hotel where Terry had spent the morning relaxing. We took the trolley to the end ... read more

Our third day in Seattle was to be spent in many locations other than Seattle. Terry's friend, Rose, joined by her daughter Nikki, had arrived at the hotel Wednesday evening in preparation for an excursion around the Olympic Peninsula. We had planned on meeting in the lobby for a 5:30 a.m. departure. Rose had planned breakfast in Poulsbo on Bainsbridge Island, so we loaded into the 4Runner and headed to the ferry dock for the 6:10 departure. The ride over took about 45 minutes on a ferry that carried cars, trucks (and I mean semis), RVs and of course, people. We were deposited within 5 minutes of breakfast. Poulsbo is a great little town influenced by early Scandinavian settlers. There were great little bakeries and restaurants; fresh flowers on each lamp post and corner. Rose had ... read more

If I began by relating how we left the house at 5:30 a.m., you would probably not think anything of it. However, if I then told you that we arrived in Seattle at 11:20 a.m., you would immediately realize that for this trip, Stormy is not the primary mode of transportation. We boarded an American Airlines flight for a 7:35 a.m. flight to Seattle. This is another trip that has been on our "bucket list" of trips. Ever since Cynde's cousin Alicia moved to Federal Way over 20 years ago, we have always talked about this trip. Then Alan and Margaret's son, Alex, moved to Vancouver to attend college. They have been keeping the airlines busy with frequent trips to Seattle and Vancouver and have described the area as just short of paradise. So..... here we ... read more

North America » United States » Tennessee » Pigeon Forge August 28th 2013

Friday morning we left Nashville bound for Pigeon Forge and Dollywood, the major destination of our trip. We made our camp at Pine Mountain RV park and set out to get an overview of Pigeon Forge. We decided Pigeon Forge was like Branson on steroids! Shop, restaurants and amusement parks everywhere, including all the Ripleys attractions and go cart tracks you can imagine. We are in the south- Nascar rules! We ate dinner at a good local restuarant, JT Hannah's, sharing bbq ribs and chicken and liked it so well, ate there the next night too! After dinner the first night, we visited a couple of arts and crafts stores and called it an early night so we could get up bright and early for our day at Dollywood. We did mange to get in a ... read more

North America » United States » Tennessee » Gatlinburg August 26th 2013

I had been anticipating our trip to Gatlinburg since our arrival in Pigeon Forge. The reason - Tennessee’s only legal Moonshine still. The only challenge - since it was Sunday, there were no samples, or sales, until noon. So, we had time for a leisurely breakfast at, where else???.... a pancake house. Yummy, and fast. We headed out on the short drive to Gatlinburg by 10:15. The trip was a short five miles, but is was a beautiful, if short drive. We elected to drive into town and park rather than park at the visitor center as was recommended. From the visitor center, you could take a free shuttle, but after our Dollywood shuttle challenge, we thought it safer to keep the FJ within walking distance. As we entered town, it was reminiscent of a small ... read more

North America » United States » Tennessee » Memphis August 20th 2013

We started out early on Tuesday morning anxious to get to Memphis to check out Graceland, Beale St. and Mud Island. We had visited these sites many years ago had great memories of them all and were excited to see how the current versions compared to those in our minds eye. The RV Park was luckily right across the street from Graceland so we hurriedly settled into our campsite and walked across the street to purchase our tickets. The last time we visited ( maybe 20 years ago?) the ticket line and waiting area was packed with tourists and we had to wait probably an hour to board the shuttle for our tour. Happily, this time we waited only about 5 minutes before we were loaded on to the shuttle ( after having our picture made ... read more

North America » United States » Tennessee » Pigeon Forge August 19th 2013

Cynde took the challenge of planning our current trip - destination Dollywood! I just gave her some general outlines - where our overnight stops should be, how many nights in each location, etc. Her challenge was to locate approprite camping locations and scope our the local attractions. So, early on Monday morning, we loaded up and hit the interstate heading east. Cynde stayed up long enough for us to get near Shawnee, then she moved to the back of the coach and crashed! She woke up just past Lake Eufaula in time for a mobile pit stop. Our first planned amusement pause was scheduled for Fort Smith. We arrived in Fort Smith around 10 a.m. and quickly located the historical area. Located on the eastern shore of the Arkansas River was the historical area that held ... read more

North America » United States » Texas » Fredericksburg July 12th 2013

Friday morning we headed out of San Antonio for our homeward bound trip through the Hill Country of Texas. This is our normal route home as we love the beauty of the Hill Country as well as the great towns we travel through such as Fredericksburg and Luckenbach. After grabbing a quick breakfast of yummy donuts from the HEB grocery store, we headed to Fredericksburg. Our first stop was one of our favorite shops, The Peach Haus. The shop has a huge supply of jellies, jams, syrups, etc and best of all, allows sampling of nearly every offering. We all loaded up on a delicious array of these including the ever popular Raspberry Chipotle sauce to pour over cream cheese. Next was a quick trip to the legendary Luckenbach, which of course was made famous through ... read more

North America » United States » Texas » San Antonio July 11th 2013

We headed out of Austin around 10:30 a.m. on Monday morning. We were on the south side of town when we began talking about Lady Bird Johnson's wild flower park on the southwest side of town, so we decided to make a quick detour to see if we could find the park. We quizzed Siri, and she seemed confident in her directions. (Siri is the on-board "personality" of the iPhone 5. She talks to you, answers your questions, and helps you navigate the web, as well as the world!) It is odd, but it does seem that Siri has somewhat of a personality, and even at times gives an infliction to her speech of confidence, stern direction, and even coyness. She led us directly to the park, but it being Monday, the park was closed. Her ... read more
